Motive: Thaddeus "T.J." Jimenez

Journalism Department Associate Professor Carolyn Nielsen, whose reporting played a role in overturning the conviction of a Chicago teen for a murder he did not commit, was featured today on the podcast "Motive." The Chicago Sun-Times/WBEZ podcast chronicles the case of Thaddeus "T.J." Jimenez who was jailed at age 13 and later sentenced to 45 years in prison. Jimenez was 30 when he was released and exonerated in 2009. Jimenez is now serving time for shooting an acquaintance in the legs in 2015. "Motive" explores the journey of Jimenez's life in and out of the prison system.
